Re: Initiate project: US Federal tax form 1040

Okay, it's taken me awhile, but I fixed up the 1040 tax form and a few
others in the same workbook.  None but the very simplest worksheets are
complete (e.g., if you're self-employed, you might have to add a couple
more lines to the 1040), but it's not like you have to create the
worksheet(s) from scratch.  I'm fairly certain that all the formulas are
correct, but of course I'm not guaranteeing anything.  Standard
disclaimers apply (e.g., I'm not a tax advisor).  I'm just hoping that
the work I've done will be useful to others.  Download it here:


I selected this site because, with its concentration on gnumeric, it
seemed most appropriate and the second webpage I read there specifically
requested 'workbooks that provide functionality gnumeric should have'
(or words to that effect) which pretty much described where I was going.
 This isn't to say that workbook will always be there on; I
hope it will be, but it hasn't actually been accepted there yet (since I
uploaded it about an hour ago), but I tested the link above just now and
it worked.  So have at it if you want.

    For a few years now I've been using gnumeric to do my taxes and have
    developed a form into which one enters the numbers and formulas in other
    cells which do the calculations.

    This form isn't mathematically complex at all... simple arithmetic
    really.  It's just time-consuming to type in all the text and
    double-check the formulas.  There's no fancy print-out either; when I'm
    done with the spreadsheet, I just copy the numbers from it onto the
    paper tax form.  Still, it's a handy tool for doing taxes.  For Linux
    folks there really isn't a better alternative... not that I know of
    anyway (but maybe I'm just out of the loop).

    So where should I put this project?  I know of sourceforge, but is there
    a better place?
